Hey guys,

My husband and I are in an awful financial situation right now, and I need to bring in commissions to help. We currently have bills overdue that we don't have money to pay for. My parents have been giving us food to eat, and it's just been a really horrible start to our year. We need $950 to be able to pay our past due amounts and be able to cover the bills for the rest of the month.

:star: If you can't buy, please take the time to advertise for me! I will give a three deviation feature to everyone who features my commissions, and I will refresh the feature once a week. You will need to do a fresh advertisement each week if you would like to be included. I will also include your commissions if you happen to be selling as well. :)

:star: Those who make a purchase will receive the feature as well, and you will have one additional deviation feature for every $10 you spend. :D Also I guarantee that your purchase will be finished at the due date I give you or I will completely refund your money!

:star: At the end of the month, I will raffle all those who bought from me and one of you lucky buyers will receive a FREE waist-up one character image from me! Hurray~ :love:

:star: ANOTHER OPTION FOR THOSE WHO CAN'T BUY COMMISSIONS! - I have a Patreon now, and you can pledge as little as $1 per 2 weeks to help support me as an artist. For more information, please see my PATREON ACCOUNT here: www.patreon.com/touchedvenus

For February Commissions Go Here:
February Commissions Needed - Please HelpAs you know already, my husband and I are trying to get through a financial crisis. I spoke more in detail about where we currently are in this journal:

First off, I want to give a huge thanks to those who bought commissions and donated or pledged money for January. You guys got me to $124 USD and are beautifully amazing individuals. :iconcryforever:
I thought I wasn't going to have this all together before I left on my trip, but I guess my worry of it pushed me to have it all together fairly quickly. After calculating what my husband and his sister are bringing in plus what his mom and my parents can help with, I need to bring in $1280 USD to help keep us going in February and be able to pay all of our bills. This is a lot of money, but if I put in the hours each week and people buy from me then I should be able to make this money via commissions. I calculated that I'll need $320 USD a week to meet my goals for February.
:heart: HERE ARE WAYS T

CHIBI COMMISSION
:star: PENCIL SKE


If you want something not listed, please don't be afraid to ask. I like challenging myself with new projects. For example: I'm in the middle of planning a mural for the stairway of two friends' house. I've never done this before, but my husband and I have done a lot of research and are going to be tackling this head on.  If this goes well, I'll probably be offering that as a regular service for those living in my area. I'm also thinking about videoing the process, but we'll see.

Speaking of which, I am STILL collecting questions for the video project which will focus on art and music, specifically my techniques, thought processes, or anything you wish to know! I also take music requests. :) I'm going to be starting with songs from movies/tvshows/plays first, though, like Disney or Broadway shows before fleshing out to other things.

These are the questions I have so far:

1. What life event made me start drawing more seriously? (from cyci15 on dA)
2. What inspires me, and what are my artistic principles? (from EinhanderZwei on dA)

Thanks in advance for all your support! I love you guys! MUAH!

MY RECENT ART

First off I want to give one big huge thank you to all of you who flooded my page with birthday wishes! Thank you so much~ I love you all! :D

:blowkiss: MUAH! :blowkiss:

Secondly, if you haven't gone to see "The Book of Life" yet at your local theater. Get your buns over there and watch it right now! It's one of the best family films I've seen in a long time, and I adore the strong latin culture. For those of you who don't know, my husband is of mexican decent, so it's a little bit of extra importance to us that this movie be seen and pumped up so we can get more awesome films from other cultures! Also, come on guys it's produced by Guillermo del Toro. This dude is amazing! And there are so many other beautiful people representing latin culture in this film. GO. WATCH. IT. NOW.

Here is some awesome fan art of La Muerte and Xibalba in the mean time~ :heart:

I copied this from a comment I made on another individual's poll, but felt I wanted to express my viewpoint via journal as well.

I'm fairly indifferent. I mean, I actually kind of like the watch feed, but if I don't want to deal with it I can completely ignore it by going directly to my regular message center. And while I do find it slightly meh that they moved the links to the far right at the top, it isn't so off putting that I'd throw a fit or anything. I mean, I located it within a matter of seconds as soon as I noticed it was moved. I feel a lot of people are drastically overreacting to the changes, but that happens every time dA or any other website makes changes. You can't please everyone, and some people are going to be a lot louder than others, especially if they are a outraged. I personally feel like I have better things to be upset about than changes a website has made to their interface that barely interferes with my work methods if at all.

Been filming all afternoon, and I'm thankful that Patrick was awesome and we used his good camera instead of my phone. This is actually more involved than I was expecting, so the video will probably not be up until the weekend. Even still, I have something recorded! Just have to review it, pick it apart, possibly redo it, and then edit it and all that jazz. XD I'm so glad that we've made this first step though. :D

Hello Beautiful People!

How are you? I know I've been quiet once more, but I promise it's been for good reasons. I'm about to start a journey with the assistance of my husband about health, art, music, and life in general, and I will be documenting it on my youtube channel. I start filming (ha, I'm using my little camera phone until I can buy a better recorder) tomorrow and it will be me basically introducing myself and the projects I'm working on, talking about my goals and how you can make your own, and I would like to invite you to join me on this little adventure~ I have an entire schedule set up for the rest of 2014 and all of 2015. I've actually already rocked out the first week of it all, and making this video series to go along with it is part of it.

Some things you can expect to come will be videos about how I create art, art tutorials, my music project, my health journey and how you can also be artistic, nerdy, AND healthy, and I can confirm there will be some random fun and nerdy things throughout the year because that's how my family rolls. I'll probably drag my husband into the videos every now and then, too.

What I want from you is to know if you have any questions that I could potentially answer for you on the video. Is there anything you struggle with when it comes to making goals? Is their something you're hoping to see in regards to art and music on my channel? Please comment below with your questions, and I'll try my best to answer as many as I can on the video which should be up before Friday. :nod:

PS - There will also probably be some Grimoire Rose tid bits as well. ;D

And that's all for now! I hope to hear from everyone soon. I love you guys~ <3

Sorry I vanished again guys. I just wanted to give you a heads up that I'm organizing my gallery. I've pulled a bunch of things out of storage and scraps, because I actually find that I miss being able to look back at my old pictures from like nearly ten years ago and seeing how far I've come since I joined deviantART. I'm updating the descriptions on some of the pictures, and making folders and what not. If you go in my gallery it's a little messy, but I should have it cleaned up in a couple days. In the mean time, here are some of the pictures I'm done messing with so far:

Hello my lovelies!

I haven't done one of these in a very very long time, and since I just finished finally clearing out all of those old wretched journals of the past I decided to start doing this again. Every Monday I will give you a chance to present me any questions you've been dying to ask me. I don't care what it is, I'll answer it. You can ask me personal questions, art questions, silly questions, whatever. Just keep it tasteful, okay? I like to be a classy lady.

Alright 3.. 2.. 1.. GO!

:bulletred: :iconmandalorianknight: If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?
Bora Bora. Hands down. I've wanted to go there for several years now, and I'm even using it as the theme for the master bedroom of my house. Every time I look at pictures of the location and those luxurious resorts, I find myself feeling very peaceful especially from the water shots. It's considered to be one of the most beautiful places on earth, and I truly want to experience that kind of beauty for myself.

:bulletred: :iconmandalorianknight: How long have you been doing art?
I started drawing when I was a toddler. I'll never forget sitting on the pew at the church and my mother teaching me how to draw a horse. My brother is also an artist, and I used to sit and watch him draw while playing with my toys in his bedroom. I can't remember a time when art wasn't a part of my life. You could say I've been drawing for close to 30 years if we wish to go by when I first picked up a drawing tool. LOL I didn't start taking art more seriously until I was in high school, though. So we can say I've had about 15 years of serious practice and 10 of which I spent with deviantART. Good lord, I will have been here 10 years come November. Time flies!

:bulletred: :iconxoxocandie: Would you rather wear clothes that are too tight or too wide/baggy?
I would rather wear clothing that is too wide or baggy. I can't stand the feeling of clothing being too tight on my body. It makes me feel like I'm choking. :XD:

:bulletred: :iconfantasylover100: How are you?
I'm doing alright. Things have been up and down lately, but it isn't anything that I can't handle. :D

:bulletred: :iconwfgodot: What was your planning process for your graphic novel? I know its been in the works for an extremely long while.  I am planning one of my own now and kind of floundering, unsure of what to do, if I should write it as a novel first or just do outlines, or just wing it.  Not to mention having trouble staying focused, I keep browsing everyone else's trying to see what's worked for them and then getting all distracted!
This is a topic very near and dear to my heart. I have struggled much like you, especially in the beginning process. First off, though, I'm going to tell you to stop looking at other people's work. You need to write for yourself. If you try to go by what everyone is doing with their work, you're going to get unhappy really fast and then the project won't be enjoyable. I made that mistake a few times. As for the planning process itself, I do an outline. My outline is more like a set of paragraphs each describing quickly the interactions that are taking place. While I write I also think from a reader's perspective. They don't know what I know, so I need to ask questions they might ask about what they are reading. Examples would be like: How do these characters know each other? How do they truly feel about each other? Why did this character make this decision? I keep these questions organized in a notepad file to answer at a later point, and I use them as momentum for the story. For me the writing process is a mixture of having the entire story from start to finish, having the world created with it's histories and cultures, and then having the characters with their pasts tossed into this world and reacting to the circumstances. I live through each of my characters, and I let them tell the story through the outlines. This way I can get them out and on the paper. Writing the novel would take too long for me to get it all out. So basically, have a start to finish skeleton of what you would like the story to accomplish. Write down all the major points in a timeline. Then let your characters write the story for you. I hope this answered your question. I tend to ramble about things I love. :XD:

:bulletred: :iconwfgodot: What makes you decide to scrap something? I was surprised at some of what I saw in your scraps, as I thought they were quite good.  Some recent, so I didn't think age of the piece was a factor.
I review my gallery once a month, usually on the first of the month. I typically leave a picture in my main gallery for at least one year. Once the image is a year old I look over how it fared in comparison to the rest of my gallery, and I decide how I feel about it in regards to my artistic goals. If it hasn't met the standards of what I'm wanting in my own gallery, I will scrap it. It's really hard to say what causes me to make my decision. It's usually on a piece to piece basis.

:bulletred: :iconshadowrinxdt: Would you like to be friends forever since I really look up to you?
I appreciate all of my watchers and your warm reception. I hope to continue my relationship with the wonderful Deviant Art community for a long time to come. :D

AND THAT'S ALL FOR TODAY FOLKS! THANKS FOR POPPING IN! :D

Short PoemHer eyes return my gaze,
A gentle “Hello” at first glance.
Those chocolate brown coloured eyes,
So full of love and compassion.
                                                           Without a sound from my lips,
                                                                 A solitary cry escapes.
                                                           Her serene marble-like stare,
                                   
Beauty of a SoulThere is the whisper of a soft voice,
a sound to silence the heavens.
Such kindness that is always expressed,
like the softness of a hand, one's gentle caress.
Your words, so mellifluous and smooth,
like an evening tide along the shore.
There is a rich beauty about you,
such an exquisite allure of personality.
You can take the darkness of ones work,
and give it it's own light.
It shines so bright to its creator,
their heart, mind, and soul feels right.
How do I express my gratitude,
other than simple spoken word?
I figure why not, let everyone see,
Your voice will be heard.
I gather all the knowledge I have,
taking notes fervently, diligently.
You might not realize how much,
that beautiful soul had left an impact.
How can I begin to judge you,
when you have no visual faults?
You can't, not a persons soul,
when you have truly seen The Gallery of Eve.
